U.S. prepares for trade talks with Japan, EU and U.K.

The White House has notified Congress, as required by the Trade Promotion Authority, to begin negotiations for three separate trade agreements.

 
The White House on Tuesday notified Congress of an intent to start three separate trade agreement negotiations with Japan, the European Union and the United Kingdom.
    U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in a statement that President Donald Trump intends to “expand U.S. trade and investment” through these agreements.
    “We are committed to concluding these negotiations with timely and substantive results for American workers, farmers, ranchers and businesses,” he added.
    The Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015, or Trade Promotion Authority, requires ongoing consultations with Congress during executive branch trade negotiations.
    According to the Office of U.S. Trade Representative, in 2017, U.S. goods and services trade totaled an estimated $283.6 billion with Japan, $1.2 trillion with the EU and $235.9 billion with the U.K.
Since the signing of the new six-year contract, I have repeatedly told my members that we have to make good on our pledge to increase container moves to over 30 an hour — and maybe even more in some ports. In a few weeks, I will be gathering my executive council for meetings in Tampa, Florida, and I will hammer this point to them again. We must deliver on this contract. And we will!
Drewry ’ s World Container Index, a composite of container freight rates on eight major routes to and from the U.S., Europe and Asia, was up 1.1 percent to $1,682.67 per 40-foot container as of Feb. 14.
